the velvet underground’s legendary 1969 album reissued on standard cd, expanded 2cd & super deluxe 6cd boxset on its 45th anniversary.

‘the velvet underground’ was a departure from the band’s first two albums in more ways than one. gone was co-founding member john cale, & in his place was a 21-year-old with long island roots named doug yule, who stepped right in. the expanded 2cd edition includes a bonus disc featuring tracks recorded live at the matrix, november 26th & 27th, 1969. the 64-track six-cd package features several different mixes of the album plus even more live recordings from the matrix in san francisco, case-bound book & liner notes by david fricke. tracks include a nearly 37-minute-long ‘sister ray’ & a version of ‘there she goes again,’ interpolating the opening guitar quote from marvin gaye’s 1962 hit, ‘hitch hike’.
